It’s hard to believe anyone would want to willingly go outside in a Michigan winter, but we make an exception for Winter Blast. Originally brought to life to coincide with Superbowl XL in 2005, the annual indoor and outdoor event is fun for the whole family. From ice skating, live music, s’mores, and a giant winter slide to excite your inner child (or actual child… or children). This year, there’s a biplane over Campus Martius for those feeling up for adventure, and for all the real masochists out there, take a plunge into a freezing pool of water to benefit the Special Olympics of Michigan.

Winter Blast will take place at Campus Martius and runs Friday, Jan. 26 from 4 p.m.-11 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 27,  11 a.m.-11 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 28, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Campus Martius Park, Detroit;; Admission is $3 (or a donation of three canned goods), North American International Auto Show visitors get free same-day admission.
